BLACK LIVES MATTER ONLY IN THE RUN-UP TO AN ELECTION, ASK HILLARY CLINTON OR JOE BIDEN

Can you tell the difference?


cgf

Black Lives Matter, a coalition of anti-Semitic Marxists, Communists, and Anarchists is the very essence of racism, misogyny, and xenophobia as they demand you pledge allegiance to their cause and support their fanatically-held beliefs and demands.

The idea that they call for the destruction of America from within, like the good little communist dupes they are, is unconscionable.

If you cannot say "ALL LIVES MATTER," you are a racist and not a true believer in equality.

Unfortunately, in the topsy-turvy Orwellian world of the radical progressives, evil is now good, wrong is now right, and down is now up. The fact that progressives are asking you to repeat, if not believe, this nonsense is to believe in the Emperor's New Clothes.

In what society, other than communist China and communist North Korea, are children responsible, not only for the sins of their fathers but also for their long-dead ancestors.

In what representative democracy do we find our representatives selling out their nation for thirty pieces of silver -- or often less?

Why is it that the revolution is never about the progressive socialist democrat elites who caused major damage with their support of corrupt and self-serving public policies, but the white, law-abiding, hard-working middle class?

Orange-man bad?

President Trump has been in office for less than four years, yet the progressives want you to think he is responsible for the ills our nation, as well as the world. Ills that predate his presidency by decades, if not hundreds of years.

In what America do we pledge allegiance to a group of violent thugs who intimidate and coerce others that they stand for equality but, at the same time, single out blacks as being deserving of special treatment?

In what America do we tolerate dysfunctional cultures who do not value individual lives or support the rule of law? This is not Africa. This is not Mexico. This is not Saudi Arabia. This is America, the land of the free. Where, unlike most countries governed by radical progressives, your right to peaceably protest is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.

The fact that the Mayor of Seattle and the Governor of Washington have ceded private and public property to be occupied by squatters should be an insult to all Americans. The time for playing nice is over. You need to choose a side -- you are either an American, or you are not. If you can't live with that, surrender your citizenship and move to the paradise of your choosing.

For those who are virtue signaling for commercial advantage, you deserve whatever the free market decides. Those in the media who deceptively sensationalize tragedy and victimization to gain audience share are reprehensible as they lie to the American people.

Bottom line…

We are at a tipping point, an inflection point, where you do the right thing or you submit. Don't hate. Don't hide. Don't be a victim.

Be aware of the gaslighting media where the evildoers project their abhorrent behavior on the opposition.

With their intolerance for the ideas of others, restrictions on free speech, destruction of historic monuments, BLM is little more than the democrat version of the Taliban.

It appears that the sole purpose of Black Lives Matter has nothing to do with civil rights, but to whip the blacks into a frenzy so that they ignore that the Democrats, the party of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and the KKK,  have treated the blacks horribly for decades -- and they must vote for democrats in 2020 and beyond to fix their problems. Of course, if they vote for Democrats nothing much will change – especially in areas that have been governed by Democrats for decades. 

One country. One Flag. One set of rules. And Americans all.

CRIMINALS HAVE NO COLOR, NO RACE, NOTHING BUT EVIL INTENT

I am disheartened and dismayed as I see our nation’s leaders, on the local, state, and federal level start their conversations by acknowledging the protesters, many excusing the anarchy, rioting, looting, and arson as the manifestation of outrage over the death of an individual in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The truth is that most of the rioters have never been to Minneapolis nor are they responsible for the actions of four individual police officers – yet they are suffering the emotional, physical, and financial pain administered by organized anarchists, criminals, and the useful idiots that support the destruction of our communities and our nation. Made even more painful when listening to the politicians who are ordering our police forces to “stand down” and do nothing to prevent the destruction.

Special mention should be given to Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Washington Governor Jay Inslee who permitted anarchists to take over a portion of downtown and collect tribute from local merchants. It is now being said that this independent zone, known as CHAZ (Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone) which is said to have a “warlord.” It is unthinkable that any American politician would cede territory and fail to protect their constituent’s security and safety.

Even the President of the United States is having his natural instincts subverted by his uber-liberal daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner whom he seems to trust implicitly…

tk-1

President Trump has always been surrounded by dodgy people pursuing their own agendas. Which is perfectly fine with Trump because he is totally transactional – he uses you to fulfill his agenda, and he has no problem throwing you under the bus when something goes wrong or you present media problems. But Kushner’s opinions on race relations, immigration, and justice reform are the beginning of the end of our nation, it’s constitution and a civil society.

Trump calls Jared Kushner 'my star' after the adviser announces he's working with law enforcement to 'fix' policing

President Donald Trump referred to Jared Kushner, his son-in-law and senior White House adviser, as "my star" during a Monday White House roundtable with law enforcement.

During the event, Kushner praised law-enforcement officials, several of whom were invited to the event, for embracing reform and "coming together to fix" policing after hearing the "cries from the community."

He added, "Hopefully at this time where there's a lot of people in the country who are feeling different pain and feeling different concerns, law enforcement can be a leader in coming together and helping us work towards bringing solutions that could bring this country forward."

The president has given Kushner and his daughter Ivanka Trump enormous power in his inner circle, and Kushner has helped lead the administration's efforts on critical issues, like the Middle East peace plan, criminal-justice reform, and the response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kushner's expansive role in the White House has attracted widespread criticism in part because the former real-estate executive had no experience in government, policy, or foreign relations before helping lead his father-in-law's 2016 presidential campaign.

Policing should be a local matter and not further federalized. The federal government should refrain by coercing states and municipalities using federal programs and funding much as the U.S. Department of Education influences local school districts.

Trump is on the brink…

There is little doubt in my mind that the Trump presidency is slowly being destroyed by the loose confederation of progressive socialist democrats and their mainstream media outlets. Consider that former Vice President Joe Biden is being promoted by the Democrats, knowing he is mentally impaired and unfit for office. They know that they will simply remove him from office and appoint another Vice President if they capture the White House. Can you trust the very people who are standing idle while America burns to protect us from an unarmed invasion over the Mexican border? Or an attack by China where they appear to have financial interests? But, President Trump’s tough stance is being softened by Kushner.

Bottom line…

The Republican Party might not seem like much today, but they are not the source of our nation’s most significant problems. It is the Democrats that are erasing their historical association with slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and anti-civil rights with their support for little more than a race-inspired riot. Unfortunately, most of the younger generation know little or nothing beyond what they see in the media or on social media. Both dominated by progressive socialist democrats who are using DARVO tactics to distract America from reality. Their battle plan is simple…

DENY

ATTACK

REVERSE VICTIM AND OFFENDER.

So while the Republicans might not be part of the solution – they are not the root cause of the problem. Democrats are!

Remember, when progressives are denouncing the individuals who are defending themselves and their families as exhibiting vigilantism – consider whether or not you want to be the victim on the ground, pleading for your life as you are kicked and hit in the head with a rock. These are the people trying to disarm law-abiding citizens and create a larger victim pool to make things easier for the mob.

We are so screwed.

THE UPSIDE-DOWN WORLD OF PROGRESSIVE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS

We are living in Orwellian crazy times where black is white, up is down, right is wrong, and evil is good...

Prosecuting an innocent man because he told the truth about the corruption in the intelligence community that supported Obama’s self-destructive Iran deal and who was about to restructure and reform the intelligence community as the President Trump's National Security Advisor…

Former Judge John Gleeson appears to be a corrupt douchebag when he argues that the dropping of the Michael Flynn case by the Department of Justice amounts to gross prosecutorial misconduct.”

Did the former judge, who is not even a legitimate party to the Michael Flynn prosecution, also comment on “prosecutorial misconduct” when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was not prosecuted for violations of the Espionage Act,  knowingly mishandling classified documents, perjury, destruction of documents and government property, and evading archiving rules designed to promote government transparency even though the evidence for a conviction was solid, overwhelming, and there was a deliberate misinterpretation of the law?

Former Judge John Gleeson, a Clinton appointee who served as the United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, was appointed to file an unprecedented brief with the trial court arguing against the Department of Justice’s dismissal of the bogus case against Lt. General Michael Flynn. A case rife with prosecutorial and judicial misconduct, including criminal acts perpetrated by the prosecutors who altered documents filed with the court as well as engaging in other reprehensible conduct.

There are only three parties to a criminal prosecution: the prosecutor (DOJ), the Defendant (Flynn), and the Judge (U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan). For the Judge to appoint an unaffiliated third-party in order to revive the prosecution’s case is unconscionable and unprecedented. For those wanting to read Gleeson’s brief, it can be found here.

Excerpts from” United States of America v. Michael T. Flynn
Case 1:17-cr-00232-EGS Document 223-2 Filed 06/10/20


“Flynn now asserts that he falsely affirmed his guilt under oath to the Court on multiple occasions and that his declaration in support of his motion to withdraw his plea is truthful. That assertion is implausible, but in any event, it would simply mean that Flynn lied when he pleaded guilty and affirmed the Statement of Facts. Those statements effectively halted the prosecution, and, if false, would have led to a wrongful conviction and required the Court needlessly to expend judicial resources taking his pleas. Under either scenario, Flynn’s false statements blocked the inquiry and obstructed the administration of justice.”

CONCLUSION

“For the foregoing reasons, the court-appointed amicus curiae respectfully submits that the Government’s motion to dismiss should be denied and no Order to Show Cause why Flynn should not be held in criminal contempt should issue.”


One Citizen Speaking:

This case ignores the fact that defendants often plead guilty to lesser charges to avoid a probable harsher sentence or who lack the money to mount a defense against the government’s unlimited resources.

This case ignores the fundamental facts that Michael Flynn did not commit a crime, was framed by a cadre of DOJ/FBI officials who re-wrote interview notes and allowed an innocent man to be knowingly prosecuted, bankrupted, and mentally tortured -- even though the case was scheduled to be closed without finding any wrongdoing.

This case ignores documents hidden from the court that prove that the “plea” was coerced by the DOJ’s threat to prosecute and convict Flynn’s son on charges rarely prosecuted in Washington D.C.

This case ignores that the DOJ did not provide required exculpatory evidence to the defense as required by law.

This case ignores that the Judge failed to manage the case in an honest and ethical manner, ignoring the many instances of prosecutorial misconduct and engaging in judicially inappropriate behavior..

This is a gross miscarriage of justice and the judge should be impeached and removed from office, or at least disbarred for knowingly aiding and abetting a criminal enterprise perpetrated by the DOJ/FBI.

Why are progressive socialist democrats taking a knee before Black Lives Matter when they are clearly a racist, anti-Semitic, and pro-communist political coalition?

Black Lives Matter is not a civil rights organization. It is nothing more than a progressive socialist democrat political action group that scares politicians. And they are both racist, viewing everything through the prism of race, as well as being grossly anti-Semitic. That cities and states governed by progressive socialist democrats would openly flout the Constitution and refuse to provide adequate protection to the lives and property of their residents is un-American and criminal. The fact that the communist Mayor of New York is using taxpayer funds to paint streets with Black Lives Matter, a political slogan, instead of ALL Lives Matter is unconstitutional.

According to progressive constitutional scholar Alan Dershowitz…

It is a real tragedy that Black Lives Matter — which has done so much good in raising awareness of police abuses — has now moved away from its central mission and has declared war against the nation-state of the Jewish people. In a recently issued “platform,” more than 60 groups that form the core of the Black Lives Matter movement went out of their way to single out one foreign nation to accuse of genocide and apartheid.

No, it wasn’t the Syrian government, which has killed tens of thousands of innocent people with barrel bombs, chemicals, and gas. Nor was it Saudi Arabia, which openly practices gender and religious apartheid. It wasn’t Iran, which hangs gays and murders dissidents. It wasn’t China, which has occupied Tibet for more than half a century. And it wasn’t Turkey, which has imprisoned journalists, judges, and academics. Finally, it wasn’t any of the many countries, such as Venezuela or Mexico, where police abuses against innocent people run rampant and largely unchecked. Nor was it the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, where the police are a law unto themselves who act as judge, jury, and executioner of those whose politics or religious practices they disapprove.

It was only Israel, the nation-state of the Jewish people, and the only democracy in the Middle East. The platform accuses the US of being “complicit in the genocide taking place against the Palestinian people” by providing aid to “an apartheid state.”

Criticizing Israel is not anti-Semitic. Like other democracies, including our own, it has faults. Criticizing Israel’s settlement and occupation policies is fair game. But singling Israel out and falsely accusing it of “genocide” can be explained in no other way than blatant hatred of Jews and their state. <Source>

Not only do ALL lives matter, but you do not get a pass for your racism, even when your organization pretends to promote civil rights. Explain to me why Black Lives Matter is pursuing direct street actions against the police when they refuse to hold democrats and black elected officials accountable for the thousands of black lives lost in the democrat-governed inner cities? Explain why Black Lives Matter does not denounce the violent anarchist group Antifa and the rioters, arsonists, and looters who use Black Lives Matter as a diversion while they destroy communities? Why are the politicians openly feting a violent, gun-wielding, drug-abusing, felon and ex-con as a shining example of an American – overlooking the heroic deeds of our military and first-responders? Why does the movement seem to favor, and be supported almost exclusively, by the progressive socialist democrats and their captive mainstream media?

Why is a professor being harassed by UCLA, the media, and others for refusing to waive exams for Black students?

Where is the free speech and academic freedom that was so touted by the University of California? Why are the administrators of a multi-billion dollar educational goliath refusing to stand-up to overt bullying by those who live their lives on social media which they confuse and conflate for the real world?

UCLA Professor Under Police Protection Following Threats

UCLA suspended professor for refusing to cancel finals for minorities after George Floyd killing

A college professor is living under police protection after rebuffing a request to exempt minority students from taking final exams in the wake of George Floyd's death.

University of California Los Angeles accounting professor Gordon Klein faced threats of violence after he declined a student's request that he delay a final exam in light of national unrest.

The university suspended the professor for three weeks beginning on June 25 and launched a discrimination investigation into the incident.

In the face of public pressure, UCLA administrators bowed to student demands and removed Klein from his class.

On Monday, Anderson School of Management dean Antonio Bernardo sent an email to students announcing an investigation into Klein's "troubling" behavior. The dean apologized to students for the "added stress" a substitution of an instructor may cause.

"UCLA and UCLA Anderson are committed to creating a learning, working, and living environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, or retaliation," the spokesman said.

[OCS: Discrimination – you mean like giving one class of students a specific benefit based solely on race?]

"Professor Klein is right. Treating students on the basis of equality is morally, ethically, and legally sound," Wood said. "The fact that his complaining student has gotten traction with her complaint is disturbing."

While Klein remains under police protection, his students have won concessions from the university. <Source>

Want to see what Anderson School of Management dean Antonio Bernardo places above honest, ethical, equal behavior. free speech, and academic freedom? $565,096 compensation in 2018! (2019 numbers are not yet available.)

Bottom line…

Snowflakes and the media-manipulated useful idiots appear to be surrounding decent Americans? When will Americans stand up and scream “Enough is Enough!”? When will decent, but misguided, people note that the Democrat Party, the party of racism, segregation, Jim Crow, the KKK, and anti-civil-rights legislation, has turned into the Communist Party USA and does not wish us well?

You cannot reason with racism and "they" can't tell you what will replace destroyed institutions except for progressive socialist democrats and their authoritarian quest for perpetual power. 

We are so screwed.

THE SOUND OF TRUTH: MILWAUKEE POLICE CHIEF TALKS TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY

Watch former Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn as he speaks to reporters after a Fire and Police Commission meeting concerning the shooting of Dontre Hamilton. In the middle of the presser, one reporter attempted a gotcha question about the Chief’s use of his cell phone and perceived inattentiveness -- and received a dose of reality about racial disparity…

If the video is missing, it can be found here.

 

Context: This viral video is from 2014 and is as relevant today as it was then. Former Milwaukee police chief Ed Flynn delivers an impassioned speech on November 6, 2014, after a tense meeting of the Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission in which he addressed the firing of officer Christopher Manney in the wake of the fatal shooting of Dontre Hamilton. <Source>

This is what truth sounds like.

But the real question is:

After six years, has anything significantly changed in Milwaukee’s black community under the Democrats who controlled Milwaukee since April 18, 1960 --- 60 years and the expenditure of countless tax dollars.

Bottom line…

The progressive socialist democrats tell you, year-after-year, if you vote Democrat, they will redress the grievances that they so helpfully pointed out in the run-up to elections. Well, after 60 years, it appears that blacks voting for Democrats doesn’t work, and it is time to change to something new.

We are so screwed.

FORGET WHITE PRIVILEGE, HOW ABOUT WHITE PROGRESSIVE INSANITY?

There is no way that I can even begin to comprehend what is going on in the mind of Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender as she and her fellow radicals seek to disband the Minneapolis Police Department. Bender received her masters in City and Regional Planning from the bastion of liberalism, the University of California, Berkeley, and worked as a city planner for that paragon of sanity (sarcasm), the City of San Francisco. The very same city that has lax policing and whose streets are awash in feces and drug needles from the homeless, mentally ill, and drug addicts who roam, mostly unimpeded, in the City. Bender is, of course, a major supporter of the radical revolutionary communist Bernie Sanders.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked a simple question,

“What if, in the middle of the night, my home is broken into. Who do I call?”

Bender’s response is typical of the self-loathing white liberal indoctrinated to believe that she lives in a dysfunctional country and it is up to her and her fellow progressive socialist democrats to redress historical grievances and care for minorities.

“Yes, I mean I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors, and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege,” Bender answered. “Because for those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.”

I was unaware that public safety and the necessity of the police department to check the criminals, crazies, and terrorists were associated with a “place of privilege.” Just how do you subdue an arsonist if you are an unarmed firefighter? When you see gang-related violence, do you call a white liberal social worker to defuse the situation? What of a knife-wielding drug-addled crazy threatening to kill someone? Perhaps a drug-treatment counselor should be called? And, heaven forbid you meet one of the Minnesota Islamic terrorists, do you call the local Imam who functions as a community leader?

Pure bafflegab from someone who is so out of touch with reality that she should be removed from office at once…

BENDER-HDR

CNN: HOST, ALISYN CAMEROTA: John. Joining us now is Minneapolis City Council President Lisa Bender. Ms. Bender, we're so happy to have you this morning, because the move by the city council certainly got a lot of people's attention last night and we're so happy to have you clarify this. So what are you trying to do? Are you hoping by dismantling the Minneapolis Police Department that you will be getting rid of the police department?

LISA BENDER, PRESIDENT MINNEAPOLIS CITY COUNCIL: I think in Minneapolis, watching George Floyd's death, and the four -- the actions of the four police officers that were involved has been a huge wake-up call for so many in Minneapolis to see what many already knew, which is that our police department is not keeping every member of our community safe.

[OCS: This is a nonsensical statement given that law enforcement cannot be everywhere they are needed, when they are needed, and with the right prescriptive to diffuse or resolve any particular situation.]

And so I think step one for us is to tell the truth. Nine council members from communities all across the city of all different backgrounds, standing together to tell the truth and say, this system isn't working for too many of our neighbors for too long, our reform efforts have failed and we have done many, many attempts at reform and new leadership in the department and many things and we still see this tragic death.

[OCS: Whose truth? Because the absolute truth is that George Floyd, a 6-foot, 4-inch, 232-pound well-muscled African American man with a long history of violent, gun-related crime, resisted arrest and died after being subdued while in police custody. Did the officer do something which appears criminal and out-of-policy? Yes! Did his three fellow officers fail to take action to prevent this tragedy? Yes!  Will these officers be appropriately punished? Yes! Did this warrant wholesale violence, arson, looting, and the destruction of public and private property? NO!

With any large system, you will always find individual acts of malfeasance (an act that is illegal or wrongful), misfeasance (an act that is legal but improperly performed), nonfeasance (a failure to act that results in harm). To dismantle a system that protects the majority of the population to cover the remaining small percentage of the population may not even be possible given the vagaries of circumstance and human nature.]

And so I think the wake-up of our community is what's driving the city council's announcement yesterday. And now the hard work begins for us to rebuild systems that really work to keep all of our communities safe.

[OCS: This is a bald-faced lie. What was driving the city council’s announcement was politics, in specific, progressive socialist democrat politics and the desire to maintain the power, perks, privileges, and profits of City Council members.]

CAMEROTA: But to be clear, you're not talking about reform. The word, dismantle, is intentionally different than reform. This is more than reform. This is dismantling. I mean, activists who support this are calling this a police-free future.

BENDER: Yes. And, you know, a lot of us were asked if we could imagine a future without police back in 2017, when we were running for office. And I answered yes to that question. To me, that future is a long way away and it would take an enormous amount of investment in things that we know work to keep people safe.

[Imagination is a wonderful thing. I wonder if Lisa Bender could imagine a nation with total equality, unicorns, and self-licking lollipops? Unrealistic, but so is the progressive socialist democrat future the Democrats are trying to sell to the American public.]

I mean, for a lot of folks in our community, stable housing is a safety issue. Having access to healthcare is a safety issue. And so, having -- you know, I think one thing folks are asking is to stop investing so much money in this militarized police force and instead invest in the things that our community really needs.

[OCS: Amazing, those are the exact talking points of the progressive socialist democrats who purport to have an answer, based on their unique expertise and science, for all of the nation’s social ills. Considering the amount of time Democrats have governed in distressed areas, one might have assumed that the public would see some progress and the politicians would be able to account for the tremendous expenditures of public funds.]

So, you know, I know the statement was bold and I stand by that bold statement, but the work ahead of us will be long, it will include every member of our community. It has to. And, you know, I think we have very immediate things, we have a state action against our police department, which gives us legal mechanisms in the very short-term.
You know, there are lessons from all over the country, all over the world that we're looking to take immediate steps while we work toward building the systems that we would need to imagine that future.

[OCS: Not one government has been able to solve the problem of the “lone wolf” criminal, crazy, or terrorist. It is impossible to build a system that is responsive to the needs of every individual. We can only hope to get it right 80% of the time and then pursue incremental progress toward the next 10%.]

CAMEROTA: Do you understand that the word, dismantle, or police-free also makes some people nervous, for instance? What if in the middle of night, my home is broken into? Who do I call?

BENDER: Yes, I mean, hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know -- and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege. Because for those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.

[OCS: I wonder what it would feel like to live in a reality where those confronted by police officers, many family men and women who are already fearful for their lives, would simply surrender, not resist arrests, and not aim weapons at officers. Gives a whole new meaning to “Hands Up Don’t Shoot.”]

And so in the very immediate, we have to lean in to whatever changes we can make in our existing police department. You know, I think we look to cities like Camden, New Jersey, that completely restructured their department, as we build up systems.
And we've already done that. We are not starting from scratch. We have invested in community-based safety strategies. We have knowledge in our community across the city.

[OCS: No matter how much knowledge police officers may have or training they may have experienced, there will always be outliers – outliers that will be exploited by corrupt politicians acting in the own self-interests. More truth?]

We've done an analysis of all the reasons people call 911 and have looked up ways we can shift the response away from our armed police officers into a more appropriate response for mental health calls, for some domestic violence calls, for health-related issues.

[OCS: Where are you going to find a doctor, social workers, or mental health expert that is going to stand-up against an irrational armed person who may be on mind-altering drugs or in a state of rage against another individual? Will this first-responder be armed? Even training law enforcement to recognize and respond to mentally-impaired individuals does not remove life-threatening danger to the first-responder.]

And so the groundwork is laid already in Minneapolis for us to build on that, to learn from folks around the world, but really also to listen to our community and put those community voices front and center, as we build up those systems even further.

[OCS: You mean listen to those progressive socialist democrats who want to bring about a revolution to destroy America and its institutions in order to re-create the system in another manner. Considering that many in Minnesota believe that the system should be Sharia Law governed by radical Imams who might issue fatwas against infidels, what weight do you give their voices to disable police departments?]

CAMEROTA: On a political point, as a Democrat, are you worried that you have just handed President Trump a great talking point or slogan or battle cry for his re-election to be able to say, see, Democrats want to get rid of your police? First, they come to take away your guns, as he says. Now, they're taking away your police officers. Does that concern you?

[OCS: With progressive socialist democrats, it always comes back to President Trump who had absolutely nothing to do with the police department and people in Minneapolis. If anything, Camerota has illustrated institutional political insanity and corruption that would see people killed before they vote for the GOP.]

BENDER: You know, that's why I said at the beginning that it starts with telling the truth. And I think we've been afraid of a lot of things, of those political dynamics of what would happen in our city, you know, to have our police force hearing these kinds of words. And that fear is what we have to really work through, because, again, that's the fear that so many in our community are facing. That's the fear that we see, you know, from George Floyd's family, or the family of Jamar Clark or Justine Damon, who were also killed by Minneapolis Police, who have told us, we never want to see this happen again.
And so the efforts we have taken so far to stop this, to make sure no one is killed in this way have not worked. So our statement is to try something new.

[OCS: Why is it that Bender does not mention David Dorn, a 77-year-old Black retired St. Louis police captain and municipal chief who was shot to death by looters and died on the sidewalk while the tragedy was filmed live on Facebook? Who was protecting him from the mob? Want to try something new? Quit excusing the bad behavior of thugs in the black community and start promoting individual responsibility. And, of course, resign your position in favor of a minority.]

CAMEROTA: City Council President Lisa Bender in Minneapolis, we really appreciate you coming on to help explain and clarify all of this. We will speak again, I am sure.

BENDER: Thank you. <Source>

Do you know what I find so sad? That Bender believes that it is her responsibility as an elite white person of privilege to dictate how blacks and others should live their lives rather than demand they take responsibility for their own action. I do not recall that she has any specific training in the management of human nature. 

Bottom line…

With the progressive socialist democrats, stupid is as stupid does. Unfortunately, they have a progressive mainstream media cleaning up the crap they left on their streets. The real truth is that the progressives are using this example of wrongdoing to silence their critics, bully citizens into granting them more political power, and to detract from the truth that it is their policies that have failed and given us this chaos and craziness.

Has anyone noticed the paradox of the progressives who want to de-fund the police AND deny you your Second Amendment rights to own a weapon for self-defense?

We are so screwed.

THE DRUDGE DRAMA REPORT: GOP DISINFORMATION ON DEMAND?

As a long-time reader of the iconic Drudge Report, the news aggregator site created by a then-conservative Matt Drudge, I have noticed that there has been a not-so-subtle change in the content. It is almost if Matt Drudge morphed into a progressive socialist democrat or progressive socialist democrat George Soros bought the site. In fact, the site became so outrageous, that one could have used the tagline “Anti-Trump -- All The Time.”

Consider the following headlines…

d-hdr

Both former President Bush and two-time, or should I say two-timing, Mitt Romney has well-known grudges against President Trump. Bush primarily for Trump’s treatment of “Low Energy” Jeb Bush in the presidential primary campaign and a rejection of the Bush “business as usual” advisory team. Mitt Romney because he is a pathetic loser and was not appointed as the Secretary of State in the Trump Administration.

As for polling, Trump is surrounded by a cadre of snakes and leakers who are pursuing their own agenda. Note that the information provided by the anonymous leaker who claims, “President Trump’s top political advisers, in a private meeting last week, said their boss needs to add more hopeful, optimistic and unifying messages to balance his harsh law-and-order rhetoric.” is not news nor is it newsworthy. Many things are said in “private meetings” on both sides that should never see the light of day. That someone would anonymously leak this information to the media is meant to curtail the free flow of ideas and disadvantage the planners. Many of the polls, especially in the progressive socialist democrat media, are artificially manipulated: polling individuals who claim they are likely to vote but do not vote or overweighting some component of the poll sample to compensate for a perceived systemic problem -- or to mislead deliberately. One need only look at the pollsters and media outlets that predicted that Hillary had a 99-plus-percent chance of winning the Presidency while then-candidate Trump was almost a statistical anomaly.

Likewise, there is the bitter and disgruntled John Bolton, who worked himself out of his job as National Security Adviser by insisting that his advice be followed by President Trump when President Trump had other ideas. The truth is that the unelected John Bolton tried to usurp the foreign policy prerogatives of the President. No matter what John Bolton says, he remains a disgruntled former staff member who was appointed by President Trump over the advice of many others who believed that Bolton was ideologically unqualified for the position. He was not well-liked and constantly sparred with cabinet members such as Mike Pompeo and Steve Mnuchin. Bolton is also an ego-driven narcissist. 

Everybody believes they know better than the duly elected President of the United States how to steer the “Ship of State.”

It is President Trump that is trying to adhere to his campaign promises. It was President Trump that moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, something that was promised by past presidents and authorized for years by Congress. It was President Trump that reduced the number of rules and regulations that hampered American Business. It was President Trump that engaged with China to open Chinese markets to U.S. producers and to curtail the theft of military, industrial, and commercial, intellectual property. Not to mention reducing taxes and engaging North Korea. Pulling out of the Iran deal, a-arms treaty Russia ignored, and an economy-busting climate accord ignored by the largest gross offenders and polluters. 

And, amazingly, he did it all while being viciously and relentlessly attacked 24/7/365 by the progressive socialist democrats in the House of Representatives and their captive progressive mainstream media. While fighting off attacks based on various democrat hoaxes.

You may not like his tweets, but it does bypass the mainstream media and dominate the news cycle. Without Trump to bash, many mainstream media outlets would have become insolvent or simply outlived their usefulness. Now, the big tech companies are trying to silence or mitigate the President’s use of social media.

The truth is stunningly simple…

The progressive socialist democrats elected a corrupt, lying president who happened to be black. A president whose administration is mired in ongoing scandals including the subversion of the nation’s intelligence and law enforcement agencies and the illegal domestic spying on Americans, the media, Members of Congress – and an opposition political campaign. The progressive socialist democrats nominated another corrupt, lying presidential candidate who was at the root of many of these scandals. Now, the progressive socialist democrats are attempting to put forth a presidential candidate who is demonstrably unfit for office because of mental incapacity—hoping to slide an unelected vice president into the Presidency and appoint another vice president.

Bottom line…

We are on the precipice. We are being screwed by the mainstream media, many of whom use the Drudge Report as a sourcebook for their inspiration. But, as they say, “Garbage In – Garbage Out.”

For those who want an honest replacement for the Drudge Report, consider the Bongino Report published by Dan Bongino, a former New York police patrol officer and Secret Service agent on the presidential protective detail.

We can no longer trust many of those who previously proclaimed their conservatism. They have sold out, if not to the progressive socialist democrats, then to the never-Trump or anti-Trump crowd who lacks the cojones to stand up, say what the really mean, and then deliver what they promised.
